Default K-7's WB vs Lightroom's WB

Put the K-7's auto-WB to the test against Lightroom's auto-WB. Both photos shown have been processed exactly the same way, except one photo keeps the in-camera WB and the other uses Lightroom's auto-WB.



So which one looks better in your opinion?

I like the one on the right--the blue sky looks better to me compared to the purple.

I prefer the one on the right for the same reason.

The reddish bridge stands out more against the blue sky, which works for me also. Still, I'd push the saturation of blue and cyan about %20.

Interesting, since my laptop shows them stacked I pick the lower one with the blue sky and more detail in the water.

Tom-

They are also stacked on my laptop too. And my preference would be the last one with the blue sky which nicely compliments the bridge.

The K7 AWB one on the right looks easily the best.

I suppose I'm weird, I like the first one best. it looks more like a night time shot.

If it was smoggy at the time, the first one would be the most realistic, but whether or not it was, the second is more pleasing to me.
